Memorial dedicated on Veterans’ Day

As our nation honored our veterans on November 11, so did Batavia Township.

A new memorial, which features a Humvee, was dedicated amidst current service men and women, veterans and family and friends. In front of several hundred people the Humvee, which displays its headlights and talelights at night, was unveiled.

“We need to thank our veterans for the freedoms we enjoy and we, with this veteran’s memorial plaza, in our own small way, are trying to do just that,” said Batavia Township Trustee Lee Cornett.
